  1. Bullet holes in paper at 300yds? You won't see them with ANY inexpensive scope. The Celestron is pretty good, the Vortex RZR is pretty good. The New Leupold is pretty good. The Kowa is definitely worth the money. A step up from it is the Swaro (really nice). Also the Zeis is popular with precision shooters. If you have to have the BESt you get a Hensoldt like I finally bought. Plan on around $7K + for it though. The beautiful thing about it is the FFP reticle so you can call instant corrections for follow up shots.
  2. We have had our 28ft. Airstream for 16 years now. Only thing we have had done is new brakes last year. We bought it a year old as the owner wanted a 30ft. one. It is the BEST !!!! I have towed it with our old Ford Excursion and now tow it with our chevy 250. You definitely get what you pay for. Buy once, cry once. Never cry again.
  3. Williams Sonoma sells 3 different SS presses. Very nice. Easy to order online.
  4. One thing I have learned over the years is that not only does a glass press make the best coffee, but it tastes much better in a glass cup. The only other option when traveling is a stainless steel cup. Coffee taste much worse in a typical ceramic cup/mug.
  5. I agree with buying loaded ammo from Duece Stevens. Good stuff.
  6. 45ACP headspaces on the case mouth. VERY light taper crimp only.
  7. Jabez, I have had an Oehler 89 on order for over a year now. Talked to them at SHOT last week. Still tweaking it so it will even work with 22lr. Should be available by mid summer. I'm only buying it to get accurate BCs on the old BP cartridge lead bullets. I know the published ones are wrong. bullets.
  8. There are some Old Time shooters in the clubs you list. Talk toosome of them. The wire probably isn't the best place for the information you seek.
  9. On short ranges like 300 a flag at 150 or200 would work. There is almost no mirage to be seen at WR. On the 540 a flag at 300 and near the target would be fine. As for flags I have about 12 strung out on my 4 long ranges. (move them around but use 6 on my 1650yd.) To make it easy I made them 1/2 size. Get bright lime green cheap fabric at the store. 42" wide normally. Get a piece 3yds. long. Cut it on a diagonal to a point. Makes 2 flags. Sew a seam along the diagonal cut. On the 42" end sew a pocket about 1" wide and close one end. Then the flag will slide down over a stick of 1/2" conduit. Drive a piece of 3/8" rebar about 30" long in the ground about a foot and slide the conduit down over it. When done just pull the rebar back out. these flags work GREAT and are cheap.
  10. Doc Nelson in UT doesn't post often but he does beautiful small woodwork.
  11. Straight cases such as 45-70 and 45-90 are known to get shorter from multiple firings. The inexpensive Tim-Smith Lyon "stretcher" requires considerable strokes to stretch the cases and only stretches them in the neck area resulting in noticeable thinner necks. That will obviously affect neck tension. The much more expensive kal-max stretches stretches the cases in the middle. Whether the shorter cases result in measurable accuracy loss is the issue. If you can't see any difference in accuracy I would not worry about it. If you can you must decide if it is easier/cheaper to buy new cases or go to he expense and trouble of stretching the ones you have. I you decide to stretch cases it is important that they be properly annealed first. I finally bought a new AMP annealer from New Zealand. It is absolutely AMAZING. I sold my trusty Bench Source machine as I feel the AMP is orders of magnitude more accurate.
  12. I just got a new edition of: "Applied Ballistics for long range shooting" Edition 3 I have editions 1 and 2 also. For those interested in precision long range shooting with modern rifles the series of books he authors are extremely valuable.
  13. You can use saran wrap in front of the screens a bit to solve the problem Lumpy alluded to. That way it is easy to see where you are shooting.
  14. STI Edge pistol in caliber of your choice. You might be able to find one in that price range.
